So next time you have a hankering for some really, really good mac, you know where to stroll. However, if you feel like staying in and enjoying bowl after bowl of the cheesy indulgence while watching a Dexter marathon, then stock your cupboards with Annie’s Organic Peace Pasta and Parmesan. It is utterly addicting--Peace-sign pasta in a parmesan and garlic sauce. Made with half a cup of plain yogurt instead of butter and milk gives the dish an even tangier and creamier flavor and is a perfect complement for the edgy parmesan cheese. Happy mac’ in!
